Games Workshop has revealed record sales and profits in the first half of the year as the firm hailed a “cracking” set of results.
The Nottingham-based group which specialises in miniature fantasy world models (the hugely popular Warhammer series) said sales in the six months to November 28 rocketed 54% to £108.9m, while profits jumped from £13.8 million to £38.8 million.
The company’s CEO Kevin Rountree said: “It is encouraging that sales and profit growth continue across all regions and channels.
“Given the high levels of operational gearing and our relentless management of our costs, our improving sales performance has translated into record profit and cash levels.”
He added that December sales also showed “good growth trends”.
The stellar results were helped by online sales, which were up 71%, and the continued popularity of table-top game Warhammer.
